I can't believe this. It's just too much. Listening to Chris's records taught me how to sing. Watching him reclaim his voice in later years, hitting notes with a clarity I hadn't heard in a decade at Soundgarden concerts in 2014, filled me with joy, happiness, and resolve: No matter what happens - smoke damage, nodules, life just getting you down - you can get your voice back if you work for it--and then some. It's a cliche to be sure, but he was inspiration incarnate for me. I have been sitting here at my workstation, unable to do anything all day. May his voice echo in the throats of generations for years to come.

Yeah it's very horrible.

I woke up to my friends texting me about it. I couldn't even process it yet til later in the day. What a goddamn shame. A true inspiration for me, especially Euphoria Morning. Lots of folks saying they always thought he was one of the more stable musicians of the 90's era. Who knew???

Out of all those genres and millions of tunes I always felt like Soundgarden was at the core, pure MUSIC.

What a shame. Nothing lasts forever.

Truly an outstanding Son of Seattle. I'm from Seattle and spent time with that beautiful rock god in the studio. He was kind, approachable, ultimately talented, inspiring, endearing, insert amazing adjective here, etc. So crushed by this news. If I had a wish, it would be to give him a huge hug and let him know that things suck now but they will get better. Not trying to be too corny, just heartbroken and remembering a beloved, galactic talent that will NEVER be replaced. I was an intern at Bad Animals during Down On The Upside and will cherish every memory as a gift...

Fly free, brother.

"Nothing seems to kill me no matter how hard I try
Nothing is closing my eyes
Nothing can beat me down for your pain or delight
And nothing seems to break me
No matter how hard I fall nothing can break me at all
Not one for giving up though not invincible I know ..."

RIP Chris

From the article.... "....side effects of Ativan include "paranoid or suicidal thoughts, slurred speech and impaired judgment"; Vicky Cornell noted her husband's slurred speech following the Detroit concert in her statement."

What a terrible, terrible shame this is.

Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now
And whomsoever I've cradled, I've put you down
I'm a search light soul they say
But I can't see it in the night
I'm only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?

Extremely sad. RIP.

Outshined and Black Hole Sun are all time classics in any genre, not just grunge.

Total agreement here.

I can only hope his being is now at rest.
